Everyone knows that big data is here to stay, and one of the best NoSQL solutions out there is Hadoop. MySQL DBAs will need to know when to adjust and leverage Hadoop within their environment and even start using and administering Hadoop clusters. Hadoop is no replacement for the time-tested RDBMS, but for dealing with petabytes of data, Hadoop is the coolest kid on the block. In this session, you will learn
1. What Hadoop is and how to leverage it as a DBA
2. What the difference is between Hadoop and relational database management systems
3. How to import and export data from MySQL to Hadoop and vice versa
4. How to use SQL to access data within Hadoop
